    Do you mean Pregabalin/Lyrica? There are many postings on this subject but here's my input.

    I would suggest starting at a lower dose unless you're not sensative to meds. I don't believe alcohol is recommended.

    I haven't started yet but will start at 25mg at night to see how I handle side affects like dizziness, grogginess. Edema/swelling is a common side affect(at higher doses?).

    I too am relectant to try lyrica but other meds, supps., alternative therapy's and diet changes haven't made a big difference in my pain level. I wasn't able to tolerate gabapentin at low dose and muscle relaxants don't help anymore. Most meds make me too groggy.
